The Game Cube can be hit with a sledgehammer and work just fine. The Nintendo DS was specifically designed to be able to survive a 1.5 meter (five foot) drop onto solid concrete without breaking, and one of the company’s bigwigs wouldn’t let it go past the design phase until the design team could guarantee it could survive the drop at least 10 times. In fact, Nintendo products have such a reputation for being impossible to break through normal means that they spawned the term “Nintendium”—an all-purpose phrase given to pieces of technology that survive extreme punishment. For example, take the Gulf War Game Boy, an original Game Boy console that survived having a freaking bomb dropped on it.

Nintendo never advertises their products as being durable, they don’t brag about their Game Boys being bomb-proof or their consoles being tough enough to survive being hit by a car. They just expect their customers to be human and include features to prepare for that humanity. While other companies decide that they’re nice by including a cover to protect the screen of the $600 phone you just bought in case you drop it, Nintendo just builds a device that can survive being dropped in the first place and doesn’t make a big deal about it. Because that’s how a real company does business.

What does Jeff Davis mean that there was nothing left in Beacon Hills for Danny? did his entire family vanish like mist the moment he realized werewolves were a thing? Does he not need to finish high school? was he secretly part of a 21 Jump Street undercover gig and he already has all his credentials!? IS DANNY LIKE MARY POPPINS? DOES HE HAVE OTHER TOWNS FULL OF SUPERNATURAL CREATURES AND SPAZZY NERDS HE NEEDS TO HELP SURREPTITIOUSLY IN THE BACKGROUND?
